Official relieves his bladder during game

This footage comes from the Qatari league match between Al Ghafarah and Al Khor. While waiting for a corner to be taken, the referee turned groundsman and decided to hose the pitch. Aside from the fact that he didn’t seem to think anyone would notice the most disturbing thing about this is that he chose a penalty area to do this – it is like he wanted people sliding around in it!

Update: It turns out the peeing ref is none other than Massimo Busacca – the Champions League final ref in trouble for giving fans the finger. Busacca seemingly apologised to Qatari officials citing health problems as his reason for starting a dribble at the edge of the box. The apology was accepted and the issue dropped.

    And the referee is … Massimo Busacca ! What a week for him…

    By the way with the black square that’s impossible to see something. I’m not convinced.

    It’s good to see that the Qatari’s support FIFA’s newest anti-diving initiative.
